Format: Paperback
I for one am all for reprints of classic material, especially when it comes to the Transformers. However, this book is a bit lacking. The 1st 16 issues of the original Marvel series is reprinted EXCEPT for issues 3 and 9. These are only presented as summaries of the story within. Due to legal issues with Marvel, they would not allow these issues to be reprinted. Issue #3 features Spider-Man and issue #9 features Circuit-Breaker. Since these are offical Marvel properties, Marvel's legal department would not let them go. If you are a completist (like me), you're better off trying to find the Titan TPBs or the individual issues in your local comic shop's back issue boxes.

Classic Transformers is an awsome book but it's missing 2 important Marvel Transformers comics! It's missing issue #3 and issue #9! The reason for this is because IDW publishing does not have the legal rights to reprint stories featuring Marvel comics characters like Spiderman and Circuit Breaker! I like that the book reprints Classic Marvel Transformers stories from the 1980s but I do not like the fact #3 and #9 are missing. I hope that this doesn't happen to the other volumes as well. If Classic Transformer volume 2 does the same thing I think you should look for Titan Graphic novels instead. B

Format: Paperback
...legal issues force IDW to leave out issues #3 and #9 due to copyrights. Also, the production quality is seriously lacking any sort restoration whatsoever. The pages look like glossy photocopies of the original issues, making them look to be faded and sun-bleached. Seriously! You can still see the very outdated dot-matrix coloring! Good attempt, but not quite the success I was hoping for.

Format: Paperback
Even though issue 3 & 9 were not printed in their entirely due to copyright issues of the Marvel characters, I personally thought the book was excellent. Having the older comics reprinted on photo type paper is an awesome ideal. Better than the way Marvel has released their Marvel Essential book series(where the books are printed in black and white on newspaper type paper(same as an old comic book from over 20 years ago). With IDW you do get your money's worth. And the art doesn't look color faded either like another person claimed!!!!
